Incomplete but As Pictured
I bought this tie rod set as a replacement and upgrade for my 97 Jeep Wrangler TJ. This ZJ set is much more robust than the stock TJ and is a direct replacement. This kit is missing to very important parts though. There is no way to connect one tie rod end to the tie rod or the drag link end to the drag link. This "kit" does not contain the needed connecting sleeves. Ive since purchased the connecting sleeves elsewhere and will be glad when they arrive so I can install this upgrade. The package from 1aauto shipped quickly and arrived sooner than expected. I will definitely purchase from them again.

1993 jeep grand cherokee limited 5.2 tie rod set
Price was great , exact replacement.Shipping was fast as always.Installation was straightforward and only took about 2 hrs start to finish, I reused my old adjustment sleeves to save some money.The individual tie rod ends are not greaseable but bar ends are, thats a draw back on a 4x4.Came with new castle nuts and cotter pins.Overall Im highly satisfied with these tie rods.Shop around and look youre not going to find a better set for this price that includes free fast shipping.Thanks Clyde P.
